Our work at the 5-star Hotel Russell includes plaster restoration and remodeling of extremely ornate plaster ceilings and walls. We are replicating and reinstating intricate ornate ceilings, cornice (to 340 bedrooms), ornate columns and pilasters. Our project expertise was recently featured in the Evening Standard.

Hotel Russell is a luxury hotel in Russell Square – in the heart of Bloomsbury, London. The hotel has been welcoming guests since 1900 to its Art Deco reception rooms and opulent public areas, including the stunning dining areas – The Palm Court & Banqueting Hall.

In April 2016 it closed for a multi-million-pound refurbishment and will re-open in Spring of 2018 under the rebranded The Principal. The suite and bedroom re-designs are guided by the expertise of Tara Bernard and Partners.

Our work is part of a collaboration with many on-site partners to restore this opulent hotel – retaining and upholding its 5-star glamorous reputation.

Once the work has finished we will showcase the before and after images.
